Andy Murray became the first British player to win a singles gold medal at the Olympics since Josiah Ritchie achieved the feat over a century ago at the Games of London 1908.
Serena and Venus Williams have entered the record books by becoming the first players, male or female, to win four Olympic gold medals.
This doubles victory also means that Serena becomes the first woman to win the career golden slam – all four majors and the Olympics – in both singles and doubles. Steffi Graf was previously the only woman to have achieved the singles golden slam when she did it within the same calendar year in 1988.
